Flacco: "If he starts to break it, go tackle him."
Flacco: "I don't know ... what else can ... I mean, they might be able to get a touchdown on that, but I don't know."
"Hey, if he breaks it, if he busts this for some reason, tackle him; go tackle him," Flacco said. "... I don't know what the rule is on that, but ..."
Birk: "Why can't you?"
Flacco: "I will -- I'm going to."
Of course, it didn't come to that, as the Ravens' special teams did the job and tackled Ginn legally.
So what would've happened had Flacco or another Ravens player left the sideline to make a touchdown-saving tackle of Ginn?
